Please pray for those in Oklahoma tornado path!!

Monday, May 20, 2013

Have many relatives, friends, and likely SparkOkies affected by tornados yesterday and today in Oklahoma!! I have friends just SW of Tulsa who are under tornado warning now until 5:15 CST, a few minute from now.

update: 51 dead in Oklahoma, but numbers are expected to rise...

Shawnee? or the video of Moore, OK? there are several clips...

Awesome News! One of my deaf friends about this #caption Live Feed in OKC!!

UPDATE: to search for relatives or to report yourself as safe, please go to

I'm posting on Twitter - @msdrpepper

UPDATE: Be very careful {edited} (what you write online because ... because.... because....):


UPDATE: Sadly, a tattle-tale complained to the SparkCoaches. and reported me for "soliciting". I thought "soliciting" was something you do in the Red Light Hooker District? My bad.

So that has been deleted, but here is a handy dandy link to go look at for other suggested ways to help out in Oklahoma - supplies they might need etc. This is from the Television station KFOR in Oklahoma (the ones that did the open captioned webcast that helped me so much!!).

    emoticon for everyone have a friend who live in Moore they saw the tornado though the window in the computer room as they closed the door to the safe room it was a 1/2 mile from them. they are safe and very thankful to still have a home but do have stuff from other homes in the yard. They still need lots of prayers as they start the clean up and rebuilding.

    it is so sad that people need to be reminded of all the creeps out there that prey on the weak & scared.
my prayers continue to rise for all those affected & for the safety of people until this horrible season is over.

    I am SO glad you are safe and didn't lose anyone in the disaster. I am really sorry about the mess. emoticon Living in Florida, I am always concerned about hurricanes and their destruction so I feel for you. My prayers are with you, your family and friends. God bless you all.

Love, Chelsea emoticon emoticon

    Saw it on the computer. I-95 closed both ways. A few years ago southern Oklahoma was hit and my husband were driving to OKC to minister in some churches. We were shocked at the devestation. It looked like a war zone.
Keep safe all of you. I lived in Oklahoma for about 4 1/2 years in the Tulsa and Pawhuska area.
